    Question 1- How do I connect a app that I use on my cell phone (thats not related to Jotform) to the Jotform app i'm building? For example, I want to put a button on my Jotform app so that when the user clicks on the button the app I connected to Jotform opens up.

    Question 2- How do I use the google maps widgets to capture the exact current location and time of a user in a "check in" type situation?

    For example I have a halfway house AKA a sober living house business and my clients have a curfew of 10pm and I want them to be able to "check in" on the Jotform app i'm building and I would like for when the client checks in for there exact location and the time of the check in data to be logged in some way. If that is possible please let me know how.

    Thank You for your time and support.

    I am afraid it's not possible to embed a third-party apps(e.g. Facebook, Spotify, Netflix etc) within the Jotform No-Code App, the closest you can do is to add a Button, then integrate it with a link to the app that you're looking to insert on your app.


    I can raise this to our developers as a feature request, however, we are unable to provide a time frame as to this feature's availability but you will be notified through this thread as soon as it's implemented.

    The the app it is only possible to have the Google Map show your business's location. I am afraid it is not possible to track user's exact location unless they input it themselves.

    On your form, you can use the Get Visitor Location to have an idea of the user's whereabouts through their IP address, you can also add a time element then set it to current and it will display the user's current time, just set it to Read Only from the advanced tab. After that, simply embed this form with time and location to your app using the iFrame embed widget within the app builder.
